The City of San Antonio, acting by and through City Public Service Board (“CPS Energy”), is issuing this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) to solicit formal proposals from companies (each a “Respondent”) for the purchase of electric energy, electric capacity and related benefits (“Products”) from generation resources to support the FlexPOWER Bundle which is the next step along our Flexible Path.
This procurement seeks both large and small options for solar, energy storage and firming capacity, with responses expected from large, well-known firms to local, small businesses. Additionally, community solar and storage are also welcome technologies, so everyone from large renewable providers to residential customers have an opportunity to participate – directly or indirectly.
Before going into the RFP evaluation process, we listed out criteria from a broad range of our stakeholders so multiple points of views and diverse objectives are recognized when selecting the right technologies – from cost to sustainability to community impact.
We’re setting precedence by selecting technologies that are not only feasible but also cutting edge, capable of performing at or better than current standards, provided by partners CPS Energy can trust, and with tangible benefits to the entire San Antonio community.
Please see the FlexPOWER Bundle RFP for specifics on the milestones.
